Pakistan Taliban say ISIS’s Caliphate is not Islamic

Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) – the primary group of militants in Pakistan has called the caliphate of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), as un-Islamic.

“Baghdadi’s caliphate is not Islamic because as a real caliphate you provide real justice while Baghdadi’s men kill many innocent fighters of other groups,” TTP writes in a statement received by media on Saturday.

“Baghdadi is not Khalifa (caliph) because in Islam, Khalifa means that he has command over the entire Muslim world, while Baghdadi has no such command; he has command over specific people and territory.”

TTP’s statement comes amid fears that ISIS is trying to establish a regional base in Afghanistan which will also pose threat to the existence of other militant groups in the region.

The loyalists of ISIS in Afghanistan are already fighting with Afghan Taliban who rejected to pledge allegiance to al-Baghdadi.

ISIS loyalists want every militant group fighting under the name of Islam to pledge allegiance to them.

The group claims to be establishing a global “caliphate” with Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as its “caliph”—head of the state.

However, their activities are against Islam.
